In January’s online event, we get to know the Trudo Tower in the Netherlands, designed by Stefano Boeri. The speakers will be agronomist and landscape designer Laura Gatti and Jarno van Veelen from Kekkila-BVB Landscaping. Arja-Liisa Kaasinen, Head of Collaboration & Engagement of the Museum of Finnish Architecture, will lead the discussion.
In the context of Stefano Boeri Architetti‘s vision for a new architecture of biodiversity, Trudo Vertical Forest applies the Vertical Forest model to social housing for the first time. Designed to accommodate mainly low-income users – such as young professionals and students – the tower in Eindhoven houses flats with low rents but high living quality. The complex vision of “living” coexistence between man and other species is thus amplified in the project into a dual challenge: the possibility of combining the great challenge of the environmental crisis with the urgent need for affordable housing in contemporary cities.
The event is free of charge. The guided tours are in Finnish and English. The Design Museum building is accessible. You can find more information about the accessibility of the Design Museum here.
The Museum of Finnish Architecture is not accessible. You can find more information about the accessibility of The Museum of Finnish Architecture here.
